Provenance: These furniture objects are being offered by direct descendants of prominent New York families from the American Gilded Age. Charles and Gustavia Senff, of New York City and Whitestone, NY, were involved in the sugar refining business and collected fine furnishings and artwork. The Senff collection of fine art was sold in 1928, and included works by Rembrandt, Rubens, Corot, Franz Hols, Velazquez, Clays and Hobbema. The Senffs gifted part of this furniture group to Warren and Catherine Havemeyer Harriot, who then expanded the collection after a trip to Venice on The Grand Tour.


restorations and repairs, marble top replaced, skirt sections with later pin repairs, separations and other possible restorations, feet possibly lacking bronze cuffs, surface with extensive losses and distress throughout
